    I'll be picking one soon. No one knows about the guy who I'm intending to pick.

    Not an alien is he?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Ian Blackwell > Virat Kholi (of course)
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    **
    you know Ian blackwell is in fine touch. Fc batting avg = 40, 10,000+ runs.
    His bowling avg is quite misleading...
    took 40+ wickets at an avg of 28 in 2010 and avg'd 36 with the bat.
    took 40+ wickets at an avg of 23 in 2009 and avg'd 40 with the bat.
    And btw the county div 1 is > indian div 1.
    Plus I needed a spinner!

    Kohli Fc avg- 56 , in county cricket thats prob like 48

    **assuming that you were being sarcastic

    Actually Read deserves to bat higher than him

    avg'd 75 in 2009
    45/46 in 2010
    42 in 2008

    Fc avg 36.5

    Blackwell's a good pick, long-term solid performers like him tend to excel in these competitions. just didn't get why you left out Kholi, who's a quality international.

    It is a strong batting lineup, to be fair.

    -he hasn't played a single test.
    - he's only batted 40 odd times in First-class cricket
    -he didn't play many games last season and his avg was nowhere near rohit sharma's 90+

    I'll play him on bowler-friendly pitches (the ones with 5 for seam or spin) to strengthen my batting.

    Sunil Joshi is prob the 2nd best spinner in indian domestic cric (murali karthik being no.1)
    avg < 20 last season, 30 in 2009, close to 20 in 2008. fc avg of 25, can bat a bit too.

    Morkel ---avg'd 25 in tests last year (test avg 30)
    Andre Adams- he's been fantastic in county cricket for at least the last 3 years. (haven't checked his stats for 2007 and before) Fc avg 22, can bit a bit too

    Johnson-- didn't do well in the Ashes but he's class. Test avg of <30. Handy lower order batsman aswell (Did I make the right decision by picking him over murali in round 2????) (Murali didn't really play in 2010, avg'd >45 in 2009)
    Prob not.

    I just love fast-bowlers. <3
